Today I came across this wonderful video below that puts so many things into perspective. I was indeed feeling down when I came across this video on Youtube and it really cheered me up (see video below). I’ve always heard that if you are feeling down start to think about all that you have and it will brighten your day. I know that you are probably thinking “Ya right, that sounds so fluffy.” Fluffy or not, it’s true. When you start to be grateful for all that you have you will find that it can really change your life.

I was recently listening to a different version of “Amazing Love” a truly moving Christian song. This song really deeply touched my spirit when I heard it. The video to this particular version of “Amazing Love” is below if you want to quickly hear it now.
When I think about how much love Jesus had for me it truly is amazing. In this song it says:
O what sacrifice
The Son of God
Given for me
My debt he paid
And my death he died
That I might live”
How many of us would sacrifice their life for a stranger? Jesus did. He did this so … read more
Often times we can’t understand why natural disasters happen or why bad things happen to us in life. But sometimes you just have to be still and know that there is a God. A God who loves us and has a purpose for our lives, no matter how complex the situation is there is a reason for that situation. It could be to test your faith or what ever reason that the Lord has, He knows best.
We don’t think like the Lord. The Lord’s thought process is far greater than ours, so we need to just trust in His decisions, … read more
So do Christians get depressed? Of course they do! What’s so amazing is that the times that I got the most depressed was when I was far away from the Lord. It was when I wasn’t going to church and doing my own thing. I’ve been raised a Christian since I was a kid, so part of me wanted to deviate from it. It’s just like a child wanting to touch a hot stove to see what’s going to happen. You are going to get burned! So I did, many, many times!
See what it says in Galatians 5, when … read more
I once heard a great person say that “Fear and Faith are relatively the same.” What? When a bad situation comes upon us, at that moment we can choose fear or faith. We can have faith in God that He will protect us and take us through it or we could just be full of fear. I was amazed when I heard that!
There have been many times in my life that I choose to be full of fear and then the Lord took me through it anyway.
I literally was a worry wart as they say. It must have really … read more
To this day I truly regret how I spoke to my parents when I was a teenager. I’m not a parent yet, but I do know what it is like to live on my own and not have all the sheltering that my parents gave me. I’m going to tell you something and you might already know it but it’s … read more
1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my … read more
The situation that I’m talking about was a certain job for my husband. I would tell my husband I’m 100% confident that you got the job. The job is yours. I prayed about it passionately and it’s yours! You know he never did get that job. I pumped him up and myself, and boy was it a let down. I was angry, because I … read more
Are you worrying about offending others when you tell them about Jesus? Don’t worry! When you open your mouth God will make all the right words flow and you will say all the right things! Don’t worry if you mess it up in the beginning, because the more you do it the easier it will be.
What you should worry about is not saying anything at all.
When you are in that moment of telling someone about Jesus, all inhibitions will drop, free your mind, just let God flow through you because you are His vessel. In the video below you will … read more
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened … read more
